Lots of activities, good food, and fun
at PWL Slave Lake’s Canada-150 event

October 9th, 2017

With the onset of autumn, it may feel like Canada’s sesquicentenary celebration is over, but it’s not. The folks at Points West Living Slave Lake took advantage of the year-long window for the celebration to host their big Canada-150 party on September 27, with residents, care partners, families and friends all joining in. 

Amazing night

“It was an amazing night filled with visiting, karaoke, dancing, a trivia challenge, colouring, photos with Canadian themed props, and amazing food,” says recreation coordinator Hannah Kaup. “Our multipurpose room was filled to the brim with over 80 people enjoying the festivities.”

One of the highlights was the photo area, where Hannah had laid out props to add a little bit of fun to the photos. “Families really enjoyed taking silly pictures with their loved ones,” says Hannah. “The trivia and colouring sheets were also a hit,” says Hannah, “especially with families, as many of them had small children.”

Flavour feast

The evening dinner was a flavour feast, with roast beef, turkey, and sides. For dessert, there was a colourful display of fruit and a Canadian flag cake, along with cupcakes and ice cream.

Such big smiles

“It was very exciting to see everyone enjoying themselves, singing and dancing along to the music,” says Hannah. “I have never seen such big smiles on some of the residents’ faces! This event went above and beyond what we expected and we can’t wait to hold another one in the future.”
